Every time this kind of statement is made without also including "if 
they distribute more than 100,000 copies a year", it's a bald 
misrepresentation of the situation.

I'm not saying the 100,000-copy exemption is a silver bullet. But it 
sure does cut down the number of people who have to deal with MPEG-LA, 
and completely addresses the "what if I want to have a enterprise disk 
image?" question. And ignoring it to exaggerate your case doesn't do 
anyone any favors.
